    Weighing and Force Measurement Control Systems

    History and Capabilities The Company BLH and Nobel Weighing Systems are suppliers of advanced measurement and control systems for the steel industry. Our experience in this area is the result of more than 50 years of innovation, starting with the development of force measurement blocks and instrumentation to measure web tension. This technology led to the development of complete integrated measurement and control systems for the global metals industry, as well as systems for the measurement of weight and force.

    Our engineers have expertise in the steel application area. We offer both standard and custom force, tension, and weighing systems to suit a wide variety of challenging measurement applications. All of our products are specially selected by our engineers to offer the best combination of robustness, reliability, accuracy, and ease of use, and are backed by reliable customer support from our office- and field-based staff.

    We were among the first to use microprocessor technology for measurement and control. In the late 1970s, we launched our uniquely designed and built digital process control systems. We continued to improve these systems over the years, and are now an industry leader. We design and build our own measurement blocks and electronic systems.

    Our systems are designed and built specifically to meet the challenges of the steel industry. They are designed to meet your needs and enhance productivity.

    A Strong Partner VPG Process Weighing is a part of VPG Weighing Systems, a leading global manufacturer of equipment for force measurement and weighing applications. Our parent company, Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG), produces sensors based on resistive foil technology, and sensor-based systems. VPG provides vertically integrated products and solutions for multiple growing markets in the areas of stress measurement, industrial weighing, and manufacturing process control.

    Weighing and Force Measurement Control We have been a turnkey supplier of weighing and batching solutions for the steel industry for more than 35 years. Whether used to weigh fractions of a gram or thousands of tons, VPG Process Weighing precision weighing systems address every imaginable weight-processing need—from 1600-ton LD-converter scales to ingredient storage bins to clean-in-place batching processes.

    Special Load Cells ●● Custom-designed and built for steel applications capacities

    up to 40 MN

    ●● Replacement units for obsolete cells in machines, such as roller straighteners

    ●● Washer-type cells for rolling mills

    ●● Special one-off designs to solve particular applications

    Web Tension Systems Dynamic Resultant Force Measurement Web tension load cells, with capacities ranging from 2 kN to 400 kN (or more), measure the resultant force in any direction and are not limited to horizontal or vertical component force. In addition, they do not require unique orientation to achieve maximum sensitivity. This permits the installation of identical load cells at multiple web tension zones regardless of the pillow block mounting or angle configuration of the roller. Our low-profile cell is sealed to meet IP67 requirements, temperature- compensated to 250°F, and dead-weight-calibrated for precision accuracy. These features add up to zero maintenance, simple retrofit, and long-term reliability for machines that continuously process material.

    Instruments and Communication G4 Multi-Channel, High-Accuracy Instrument

    ●● Up to eight synchronous measurement channels

    ●● Simple set-up and calibration

    ●● 20 kHz-bandwidth provides very fast response

    ●● Connectivity: Most fieldbus options available, plus Ethernet

    ●● Large internal memory capacity

    ●● Full-color touch screen provides increased functionality

    ●● Panel- and DIN-rail-mounting versions
